I haven’t seen the American remake but I heard it’s also good.


#3982

The second season has its moments but no where near as good as season 1.


#3983

Neither, but really I don’t see the point. There is only one Sarah Lund. Scandos do it best.

There was another Scandi crime series on SBS recently that is worth a look - midnight Sun. Anything I say would be spoiler

“Come the fk in or fk the fk off”


#3985

Scandos make some awesome movies also.

Will check that series out.

Seinfeld

Top 5 Australian shows
Utopia
Very small business
Upper middle bogan
Hollowmen
Rake

Top 5 British shows
Fawlty towers
Black adder
Doc Martin
The inbetweeners
The office

Probably left out many honourable mentions.

Edit left out game of thrones because whilst good it is has nothing on the books and the last season was ordinary.


#3988

Seinfeld
The Sopranos
The Wire
BoB
Parks and rec

Having said that, Fargo season 2 is prob the best season of a slow I’ve seen.


#3989

Honourable mention: Carnivale


#3990

Band of brothers
X files
Simpsons
Seinfeld
West wing


#3991

The IT Crowd
Frontline
Father Ted
Dead Like Me
… maybe Deadwood

Honourable mentions Damages and Rome, both amazing first seasons. Homeland too.


#3992

Finally got round to watching stranger things series 1, after reading that it was going to overtake game of thrones as most popular.
I love the 80’sretro of it, brings me back to when i was a boy. Never into Dungeons and dragons though, but dont mind the plot, even if its a little scary.


#3993

I really enjoyed Stranger Things (haven’t watched S2 yet) but for me it’s not in the same category as GOT.


#3994

Top 5 for me in no particular order:
GOT
The Wire
Breaking Bad
Battlestar Galactica (new version)
True Detective

I’m sure I’m forgetting one that i’ll kick myself for later. Also Stranger Things currently one of the best shows going round. Plan to watch the Sopranos over the summer.

Comedies
Fawlty Towers
IT Crowd
The Office (UK)
Always Sunny In Philadelphia
Seinfeld

Honerable mentions to Curb your enthusiasm, Arrested Development, Eastbound & Down, Parks & Rec, 30 Rock, Black Adder, Alan Partridge and Flight of the Conchords.


#3995

My top 5 shows currently airing

The Last Kingdom
Vikings
Game of Thrones
Stranger Things
Atypical


#3996

Some folk bringing up specific seasons. That’s why I’d probably have The Wire at the top. Every season was fantastic. I’ve gone nuts for Breaking Bad, GoT, Lost etc. but for something in its entirety, it’s gotta be The Wire.

Comedy shows stick with me more because of the repeat viewing potential, so:
The Young Ones
Fawlty Towers
Seinfeld
The Office (UK)


#3997

Late game of Thrones isn’t in the category of early GOT


#3998

In fairness to my list. 2 shows are currently running and only have that amount of series out. In planet earths case until Attenborough kicks it.

But I lucked out with Dexter. Trinity arc was the peak of that show.


#3999

Absolutely. Was that season 4? It was fantastic, and then the quality just plummeted.


#4000

Yep. Showrunner left. Makes a big difference.
